-Hans Christian Andersen “To Travel is to Live.” No truer words were ever spoken than in this quote by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. Andersen who is best remembered for his fairy tales such as Aesop’s Fables, was also a noted writer of plays, novels, poems and travelogues. Indeed, traveling is a great way to live, and along with staying active, both are very important components that lead to a healthy aging process. According to the Global Coalition on Aging (GCOA), in a news article Travel and Healthy Aging: The Journey and the Destination, GCOA states that while those who stay healthy as they age are able to sustain active lifestyles, including traveling into their 70, 80s and beyond, the reverse is also true – as one travels, one will be healthier. The data available connecting travel and health is quite powerful. If, however, we think in terms of health and the activities normally associated with travel, we can actually see the benefits first hand. While traveling is a great way to assuage stress, activities like walking on the beach, hiking through national parks, museum hopping or navigating in unfamiliar surroundings, can all have a positive impact on our health. Not only do these activities provide physical improvement, but also

mental exercise as you learn and interact with different people and different situations out of your comfort zone. Time to make your dreams come true and join us here at DIRECTIONS Tours and Let’s Travel!

All my best, Debbie

Debbie Wheeler and Tod DeHart DIRECTIONS Tours, LLC Travel is proven to be one of the best ways to make your life healthier, happier, stronger and more fullfilled. Actual studies have proven that travel increases well-being, learning experiences, decreases stress levels, and creates memories of a lifetime. In addition, traveling builds stronger relationships, new friendships and connects people to new ideas and cultures. Vacation and relaxation go hand in hand. When leaving home (or work) and adventuring away from “the norm”, we leave our day to day lives and responsibilities far behind. This allows our bodies to reset our biological body clock and synchronizes it with the earth around us. Notably, studies, like the one Debbie points out in her article above, have shown decreased stress levels in people who travel. Reducing the amount of stress over just one week away on a trip, travelers registered lower levels of stress hormones in their saliva. It is common knowledge that travel brings people together and builds new and everlasting relationships. Whether you travel alone, with family, or with friends, a vacation get-away improves and forms relationships and friendships. In my 25 years of travel experience,

I have taken joy and pleasure in seeing so many new relationships form and grow while adventuring out. One of my greatest joys is introducing single travelers to new people, which ultimately become lifelong friendships. Because of this, I decided to create a more affordable pricing package for single travelers with DIRECTIONS Tours! When traveling as a single, one must pay more money in most cases (due to not spliting hotel costs with a traveling companion / spouse). This leads to higher single supplemental costs and deters many people from traveling alone. So... I went to work with our vendors and negotiated better rates for our single guests. Now, when traveling with DIRECTIONS Tours, single travelers will enjoy our great trips at the same rates of doubles or in some cases, just a little more. We are the only travel company in the region to offer this affordable option! As you thumb through the pages of our current Tour Catalog, find some of our most popular tour destinations for 2019 and 2020. I hope you can join us on one of these exciting adventures.

Happy Trails, Tod
